Humans do amazing things, all the time, without even thinking. It takes 34 muscles to move your fingers and thumb and more than 80 billion neurons to think. Humans use 300 muscles just to stand still! Imagine trying to build a machine that can move like a human, think like a human, or even simply stand still like a human. Robots will explore building state-of-the-art humanoids and witness the trials and tribulations. You’ll meet the leading humanoids of today, many of which are already performing previously unimaginable tasks such as walking, talking, and thinking. Robots 3D will introduce you to future challenges and the real world needs for robots, in a way only the giant screen can show you!
